Rukmangada Pandit Samadhi

To the southeast of the city, just beyond the city limits stands a modest rectangular building. It is the samadhi of Rukhmangada Pandit who is said to have been born in 1610 A.D. Son of a judicial officer under the Adil Shahs, he became a great physician, musician, philosopher and yogi, performed many miracles such as enabling the born dumb to speak, turning flesh into flowers, curing leprosy patients and stopping the ravages of cholera epidemic, etc. It is also believed that he played a distinguished role in repelling the first invasion of Aurangazeb. A great festival is held annually on the anniversary of the philosopher. In front of the samadhi are out houses for the use of pilgrims.
